Need a house phone with decent speaker
When using our current phone on speaker it distorts quite badly when the volume is turned up, it’s a few years old now so looking to replace it.
Anyone bought a recent phone that has decent speaker clarity at higher volume?

Siemens Gigaset phones – excellent.Posted 2 weeks ago

Cheers ocean, excuse the ignorance what does Gigaset mean? I see there are a few makes…Posted 2 weeks ago
Looks like they’ve actually made Gigaset the brand name now. They used to be branded Siemens and Gigaset was the range.
this is them though, I’ve got a really old one and it’s been faultless, if/when it packs up I’ll certainly be buying another.
That Gigaset CL390 is analogue. All landlines in the UK are transitioning over to digital between now 2025, it is a phased transition that has already started. In most cases (although confusingly, not all) analogue phones will not work on digital lines.
If you need a landline phone due to hearing issues then the A2D transition is a good thing as digital lines will be clearer.Posted 1 week ago
My mum got an adaptor similar to ye olde ADSL filters for her phone when Virgin went digital so it shouldn’t be an issue.Posted 1 week ago
I wasn’t linking to that specific phone, just the website in general. TBH the website didn’t display that well on my phone where I copied it from so apologies if it was misleading. I’m recommending Gigaset in general as the models have all changed since I got mine….Posted 1 week ago

All this techno talk baffles me, easily done 🙂
Looks like I need to look for a Gigaset phone then.
A2D is analogue to digital
Do you need a corded phone or a cordless phone?
If cordless, how many handsets do you want?
Do you need an answer machine?
Take a look at Argos, there’s loads on their page but you can narrow it down quickly with the choices above and customer ratings
I like my Panasonic cordless, has been reliable for many years.Posted 1 week ago
Would a handset with Bluetooth work? It could be paired with an external Bluetooth speaker of your choice.Posted 1 week ago
Cheers, some things to look at next week.Posted 1 week ago
Cordelss, one phone & answermachine would be useful.
Not sure about bluetooth, maybe useful?
